Putting pressure would be not vetoing every single resolution regarding the two state solution and Israel in general at the UN. It would also mean cutting the military aid to Israel and placing sanctions to put real pressure on it....until then Israel has no need to change it's policies...it's quite happy to continue them. Of course, Israel is useful to America...and America gives rights and privileges to countries based on that, not on any moral grounds..so again, nothing will change and the Palestinians will suffer.edit on 12-12-2010 by Solomons because: (no reason given)
French officials are calling highly inaccurate a report from Iran’s Press TV that France will join several South American countries in recognizing Palestine as an independent country.
Bernard Valero, a spokesman for the French Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that Paris agrees with the formation of a Palestinian state based on the exchange of land between Israel and the Palestinians,” Press TV reported.
But a French official told POLITICO Wednesday that the spokesman was simply pointing to a March 1999 European Council declaration, which defined the European Union position on the issue.
“The European Union is convinced that the creation of a democratic, viable and peaceful sovereign Palestinian state on the basis of existing agreements and through negotiations would be the best guarantee of Israel's security and Israel's acceptance as an equal partner in the region,” the European Union position states. “The European Union declares its readiness to consider the recognition of a Palestinian state in due course, in accordance with the basic principles referred to above.”

I beg to differ.
I see the UN as nothing more than an anti-Jewish lynch mob.
Just because everyone votes against them, doesn't mean they're right.
If you need further indication, look at the idiots we have in the Senate, the House, and even our President.
They're not even close to right.
The U.N isn't driven by any sense of justice, it's driven by political agendas, stop treating it like it's the saint government of the world.
